Prerecorded 10/15/2005... no call-ins please

A 13th generation Diiyin (HolyOne), Maria began her training at the heels of her grandfather, Quero Apache poet and snake clan priest, Juan Ten Bears Yraceburu. Following an extensive apprenticeship under his guidance, she also was tutored by Matthew King of the Lakota, Phillip Cassadore of the Apache, Buffalo Jim of the Seminole, and Rolling Thunder of the Cherokee/Shoshone.

During college she worked with her advisor Meredith Kane in merging the native healing rites she had learned, with clinical psychology, for the healing of women who had been sexually abused as children. This merger has unfolded to become what is now known as Applied Ecopsychology and is practiced throughout the world.

Maria is founder of FollowingAncestors, and it's non profit partner EarthWisdom. Both organizations work deligently to present ways for individuals to heal and reconnect with the forces of nature and spirit. Her articles have been published in over 25 different countries, and her books Legends and Prophecies of the Quero Apache (Bear & Co, 2002) and Prayers and Meditations of the Quero Apache (Bear & Co, 2004) introduce us to the fine and powerful traditional teachings that speak of these times of evolution.

Maria can speak with authority on these subjects... she grew up in them, and lives them daily. "My uncles, my forefathers, have said, 'This is the way it is done. Keep it up. Teach others that come, so that they will carry this forward. When you have that connection in your heart it will always carry forward." - from Legends and Prophecies of the Quero Apache Natural Health: Lessons from the wheel of life: bridging the gap
